The article focuses on the contents of the April 1, 2006 issue of "Labour History Review," which discuss the relationship between Freemasonry and the history of labour in Great Britain. The differences regarding class attitudes toward 18th century Freemasonry and contemporary Freemasonry are discussed, as well as the suspicion which right and left wing groups have about Freemasonry. Roger Burt's essay regarding Freemasonry's role in coal and non-ferrous mining labor relations is discussed, as well as an article by James Smith Allen on women in French Freemasonry. Andrew Prescott and John Hamill investigate allegations of Freemason involvement in 1935 Labour Party elections in Great Britain.
